The termly fee is payable in advance on or before the first day of each term, unless otherwise agreed by separate contractual agreement. If no arrangement is in place and fees are not paid before the first day of term the fee will be liable to a surcharge of 1.5% and further similar charges at the end of each month that the account remains unpaid. Any remission may be withdrawn if payment is not received on this basis.
As a result of changes to legislation, we will be unable to accept payment of fees by credit or debit card from 13 January 2018.
Monthly payment of fees
We are aware many of our parents would like to pay school fees on a monthly basis. Due to the strict rules and requirements regarding consumer credit, this is something the School does not currently do. However, we are aware of a company who does offer a scheme that might be of interest. For more details please click on the below https://www.myschoolfeeplan.com/KingsCollege-TA1.
It is not unusual for a pupil to be eligible for or be awarded multiple remissions. Please note that only the largest of these will apply as far as the remission of fees is concerned. Remissions may be removed if fees are not paid on time. Please see the School’s terms and conditions for more details.
